Things didn't bode well when, after phoning the owner for directions 40 mins before turning up, the hotel was still locked when we got there and we then had to wait 20mins (after phoning again) for the woman who acts as a hotel manager (of sorts) to eventually turn up and and let us in - without an apology.
We were told breakfast was from 9 -12 but were surprised that when we turned up at 10 this meant breakfast buffet was put out at 9 and left uncovered until you turned up. Given that at all the (much) cheaper hotels we also stayed at breakfast was prepared fresh for us, this took us back. The woman who we met the day before didn't welcome us but instead continued to sit on the sofa watching greek morning tv (you eat breakfast in the lounge / bar) and even turned up the volume when we started chatting to each other! her attitude continued in this vein throughout our stay and we were made to feel like we were intruding in her home rather than being guests.
That said, the hotel room itself was very nice with a hugely comfortable bed, sofa, tea making facilities and good bathroom. However, its worth pointing out that the suites have a bath only and not a shower (my misinterpretation so not hotels fault but just a point!).
It is also worth pointing out that whilst the owner takes your credit card details on booking and the window has mastercard and amex stickers, they (like most other small greek hotels) don't actually take payment by card so be prepared.
